Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • Unforgetably positive experience

    "It was a beautiful, well maintained building with an excellent chef and staff. You feel like you are in the heart of the rainforest and yet stores and great bars/restaurants are close enough to visit without taking a cab."

  • Relaxing, beautiful and lots of wildlife

    "We really enjoyed our stay at this property near Manuel Antonio. It's located about halfway between the small town of Quepos and Manuel Antonio national park. The unit is not fancy, but comfortable and nicely decorated with lots of wood providing a warm feel. The upstairs bedroom is very large, but the downstairs is small with just room for a full-size bed. It was fine for my wife and I and our two daughters. It has two patios (a large one downstairs with a BBQ and a smaller one off the upstairs bedroom). Katherine was a very nice hostess. She lives nearby and is available to help with anything you need. The complex is lush and spread out. We felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. The pool is very nice and there are fruit trees (mango, papaya, coconut, starfruit, plantain) throughout. The best thing was the abundant wildlife. We saw squirrel monkeys (and fed them by hand, although I suppose we weren't supposed to), white-faced monkeys, iguanas, and macaws. I was even woken up from an afternoon nap by banging on the window. When I looked to see what the commotion was, there was a pair of toucans on the balcony. We found a great hiking trail through the jungle nearby with giant bamboo and a waterfall. We went to El Avion (a restaurant built around an old airplane) twice. It has a great view and we dined with sloths just off the restaurant balcony on our second trip. We would definitely recommend this to family and friends."

  • Views, monkeys, close to town, and helpful owner

    "We had a group of six who stayed at this villa in late March 2016, and we really enjoyed our time there. We had two older couples and then our son in his 20s who came with a friend. We chose this location because you don't need a car and can walk to the town and to the local shuttle bus stop in about 5 minutes -- though the return trip is up a hill for a short time. The home is large with sweeping views of the jungle and the ocean in the background, and there is a nice pool often visited by monkeys. Our son and his friend said they saw more monkeys at the pool than at Manuel Antonio park. My husband and I enjoyed the top bedroom, though people need to know that it is more of a loft so it doesn't have total privacy. However, we loved the view from up there out all of the windows. The attached bathroom has windows at the tree level, and these trees attract some beautiful colorful birds, so I did much of my bird watching from the bathroom! The bedrooms are also air conditioned. The bedrooms on the other level are not as large, and the shared bathroom is smaller, so people should be aware of that along with the fact those upstairs need to walk through one of the bedrooms to get to the lower level (unless Jean has another way around this). We're all close, so that didn't bother us. Jean was the ultimate host and was responsive and great to work with. We even invited him to join us for a drink one evening, as he is very interesting and well-traveled. He also let us store our bags there after we had checked out so we didn't have to take them with us to the beach that afternoon. We would recommend Villa Azul."

  • 111 was the ideal vacation retreat...thank goodness because it rained the whole time!

    "Tulemar was lovely and unit 111 was spic and span clean, stylish and the perfect retreat for our rainy, rainy, rainy! week in Costa Rica. We visited several resorts for meals and drinks and we were so glad we chose Tulemar, even though the others had their pluses. Best of all at Tulemar was the private beach with friendly staff to assist with anything ie. free kayaks, towels, etc. David-- the beach manager-- was so friendly and just wonderful. And our housekeeper, Sondra, did an excellent job. Frank, our concierge, wasn't anyone to rave about. As he showed us our unit upon arrival & we asked questions, he seemed disinterested, unless we wanted to book activities through him. VRBO/Tulemar said the concierge would be "checking in on us" during our stay, and we never heard a word from him after checking in. Considering it was pouring rain 5 out of the 7 days, it may have been nice of him to give us a text to perhaps suggest some rainy day activities. We found our own eventually, including the mangrove tour, which was in a covered boat so the rain wasn't an issue."
